Why Are You Here?

Eccleciastes 12:1-7 Remember now your Creator in the days of your youth, Before the difficult days come, And the years draw near when you say, "I have no pleasure in them": While the sun and the light, The moon and the stars, Are not darkened, And the clouds do not return after the rain; In the day when the keepers of the house tremble, And the strong men bow down; When the grinders cease because they are few, And those that look through the windows grow dim; When the doors are shut in the streets, And the sound of grinding is low; When one rises up at the sound of a bird, And all the daughters of music are brought low; Also they are afraid of height, And of terrors in the way; When the almond tree blossoms, The grasshopper is a burden, And desire fails. For man goes to his eternal home, And the mourners go about the streets. Remember your Creator before the silver cord is loosed, Or the golden bowl is broken, Or the pitcher shattered at the fountain, Or the wheel broken at the well. Then the dust will return to the earth as it was, And the spirit will return to God who gave it.

You have probably already heard the saying: "Time flies when you're having fun." Well, time also flies when you're not having fun. Time and life is going by very quickly. It is easy to waste time and get bored if you don't understand why you are here on this great playground, which we call earth. You are here to praise God, to love Him, to celebrate life in Jesus, to love others and to win them for the Lord, and to do good things which make a difference in this world.

Take heed of the advice of the writer of the Psalm: "So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom." (Psalm 90:12)

Take a minute to ask for God's direction for this day. If God is a part of your day, then it is never wasted! sw
